The Cattle Street twelve Social Housing apartments were a design and construct project for Field Construct in conjunction with Julianne McAlloon Architects. Here we have elevated eight apartments at second level serviced by a lift car over a further four on grade apartments and twelve carparks. With limited budget we achieved some attractive external fenestration of fibre cement cladding boards, architectural screens and balustrades. This was a successful project for the client and well received by the community. The apartments are all well insulated to walls, floors, ceilings and are provided with ceiling fans. Even though there is no air conditioning, with crossflow ventilation through every apartment capturing the breezes these apartments are cool and comfortable to reside with the deep set back balconies provide shade relief from the tropical sun.
